I’ve been uing Xubutu for a good few years but recently, for whatever reason, I’ve been finding resizing windows fiddly. Using a touchpad or keyboard nubbin, I’ve been struggling to hit the edge of the window to click and grab.
I was expecting to be able to find a config file somewhere where I could tweak the size of this “grab space” and a little googling led me to the name “resize grip”.
Surprisingly, it turns out that it’s not a configable value, you have to resize an image. My theme is Greybird, so here’s an ugly hack to make the grippy corner 4x bigger.
